Upon walking in you're punch in the face with a fishy, greasy cloud of smog that doesn't relent. You will have to burn your clothes once you get home. Be forewarned, wear something expendable. There is something seriously wrong with their vent hood. My son...More

Went for lunch with our grandson. The halibut fish and chips were the best we have ever tasted. Clean but not fancy. Just good food with good service.
